From April 2022, NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine will be leveraging Microsoft’s holographic technology to teach medical and nursing undergraduates.

Named Project Polaris, this collaboration will see the use of Microsoft HoloLens 2 to project three-dimensional (3D) holograms to give medical and nursing students a visual appreciation of actual clinical scenarios in practice.

The suite of instructional software – developed by the team from NUS Medicine and Microsoft Industry Solutions – will enable students to practise clinical procedural skills, such as inserting a cannula and inserting catheters in male and female urinary tracts, using mixed reality technology.
